I have been living this lifestyle for about five years now, so I probably have enough experience to write about it. This lifestyle being one of a single woman, mid fifties, self employed, living remotely. That about sums it up.
But what's interesting is what happens in the spaces in between. I haven't met anyone yet who is like me. Similar lifestyle maybe, but not the same. If I were inclined to loneliness, I would be. That is one difference I don't find often in others. I really enjoy my life, I'm free, totally free, well except I have to work, but I even enjoy my job. I only need to work about three or four days a week to pay the bills. My expenses are very low. You could say I'm a bit of a minimalist, but only a bit.
The day to day of my life on the surface may not seem too appealing to others, (except for the freedom), but the experience is rich. I live closely with nature, I navigate by the weather, feed the birds and meditate often.
I don't watch the news, or sports, I don't socialize much, I don't need people to entertain me. I work on my house, I garden, take photographs, commune with the wildlife. I am genuinely happy!
So in these upcoming blog posts I will share my life with you, whoever you are. Perhaps there are others out there who feel different. I invite you to share your story, your thoughts.
I will talk about my house, my job, my life. More importantly I will share my secrets to a truly successful and fulfilling lifestyle, without all the frills - as a New Pioneer.
